We love Make Noise modules and a new order just arrived! Come by the shop to demo them or if you would like to order one e-mail us or call (512) 782-8806 (12-6pm Central Standard Time) 
About the modules...

The MMG Filter

A vactrol based Voltage Controlled Filter and Low Pass Gate using a QMMG core. The MMG bridges the Far East and West Coast synthesis styles by allowing for highly resonant acidic squelch and organic, percussive animations to be programmed simultaneously with a single module.     

  • Input with attenuator, drive and compressing Overload Circuit with LED indicator
  • DC input for combining control and/ or audio signals
  • MODE allows for smooth Voltage Controlled sweep between Low Pass and High Pass responses with LED indication
  • FREQUENCY control with bi-polar CV attenuator and additional unity CV input
  • Voltage Controlled Q yields everything from smooth to aggressively clamped resonances
  • Automatic Gain Control keeps signal levels under control at High Resonance settings
  • ACCENT input for X0X style punch
  • STRIKE input for LPG style bongo plonks
  • Pairs well with the Echophon and Phonogene


The Echophon

Pitch Shifting Echo with smooth Time Modulation, Tempo Sync, saturating Feedback and a unique Pitch Shifting algorithm inspired by the Springer Tempophon and lovingly engineered by DSP Guru Tom Erbe of soundhack . "...the most inspiring module of the year." -Electronic Musician.

  • Shift Pitch of signal +/- 2 Octaves
  • Exponential control of delay time -Maximum Time 1.7 Seconds, Minimum Time 7 ms
  • Tempo input allows synchronization of Echoes to multiple or division of an external Clock
  • Two independent internal digital Feedback paths (Loop 1 and Loop 2)
  • External Analog Feedback Path for filtered or processed echoes
  • FREEZE button/ gate input allows for hold, stutter and sampling techniques
  • 24 bit ADC/DAC, 32bit processing, 16bit delay storage operating at 40khz
  • Vactrol based Mix circuit for smooth blending of dry and wet signals
  • All Analog Dry Signal Path
  • Voltage Control over ALL parameters
  • Pairs well with the Phonogene

 

Switched On Walk-Through feat. Yamaha DX200


A walk through of our store front in Austin, TX to allow you (the viewer) to quickly glance at some of our inventory. 
 
This week your hearing some in house recordings of a Yamaha DX200. The DX200 is a "groovebox" type of instrument although it is interesting in that it uses an FM type of synthesis and is easy to program with on the onboard knobs.

10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager Winner, Thomas Echols!

A very excited Tom Echols poses with his newly gifted 24 karat gold MiniMoog Voyager

Last week was SXSW in Switched On's hometown of Austin, TX. Musicians, industry folks, and vacationers from all over the world come to town and Switched On is a popular destination. We had our annual showcase with Moog and it was amazing, but another thing that took place in our store front only happens once in a lifetime. Moog gifted a 10th Anniversary 24 karat Golden Minimoog Voyager to one of our clients and friend Tom Echols. Needless to say he was ecstatic beyond belief. Read more on this HERE.

Moog Music In-store all week for SXSW 2013

 

SXSW 2013 is officially here! Switched On is in the heart of Austin and we're lucky enough to meet musicians who have come here for the festival from all over the globe. This year we invited Moog Music to setup a station in our store front! Check out the Lunar (White) Voyager and Voyager XL, the MoogerFooger line, and the highly anticipated Sub Phatty! The Sub Phatty is yet to be distributed so here is your chance to get a taste test of what Moog's new mono-synth has to offer. Switched On is taking pre-orders online and in-store for the Sub Phatty as well. 




Also try to come check out our event planned with Moog this Saturday! More info on that HERE.


 

 

 

Paul Bley's Arp 2500

 

Switched On is currently in the company of the Arp 2500 originally owned by free jazz pioneer and pianist Paul Bley. We have taken detailed photos of all of the individual modules in their un-restored state. All serial numbers on the modules are extremely early production.

View the full Flickr set with photos of the individual modules HERE.






 

The Official Moog & Switched On video flyer for our show is out!!

Rare Waves LITE2SOUND Kit

Everything is included in the LITE2SOUND kit to start hearing light except solder, battery, and your time!

It's no surprise that Rare Waves (Eric Archer's new company) is putting out another unique device. His Grendel Drone Commander, Eurorack Format Grendel Formant Filter, Rhythm Bots,  are previous examples of his cutting edge work. This time around he's created a kit of one of his early designs: LITE2SOUND. It uses a laser diode cell to take in different frequencies of light and output their pitch equivalents. This is different from a cadmium sulfide cell or photo cell in that close proximity to light is not an issue. Simply point it at any light source and begin hearing the strange textures and frequencies therein. 
Here is an awesome use of the LITE2SOUND kit using a strobe light to trigger a sequence in a Serge modular system. 


More info and purchasing HERE.
